Moses, the man of God, once sang a song to the congregation of Israel. It was a song of beauty and strength, reminding his people of the dependable nature of God and warning them of the danger of corruption and idolatry. He urged them to return to the paths of righteousness, which are the ways of peace.

It is a song which should be studied and pondered, for it was sung by one who understood God and recognized His changeless, pure, and dependable nature. "Ascribe ye greatness unto our God," he sang. "He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgement: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he" (Deut. 32:3,4).

The God of truth is dependable. We can absolutely rely on Truth. There is no if or but about Truth, God. "His work is perfect." We are absolutely dependent on Truth because Truth is entirely dependable. Sometimes we are led to believe that we live in a period which is basically different and remote from days gone by, from the age, for instance, of Moses and the prophets. But world conditions to day are not fundamentally unlike the times when Moses sang his song to Israel and when the prophets of God urged the people to forsake idolatry and to renew their spiritual understanding. The necessity still exists to discard false trusts and return to the worship of the God of truth, whose government, through His unerring intelligence, is seen to control all events.
